Corona Virus (Covid-19 Update)

Update:  12 November 2020


The Ministry of Health has provided an update on COVID-19 after a community case was confirmed in Auckland. 
As a precaution those who work in the Auckland CBD have been advised to work from home today, Friday the 13th November, where possible. If you must go into this area wear a face covering and practice social distancing. This advice will remain while health authorities continue to work to trace the source of this infection.

For this reason the ELA will be closed today to all students and staff. ELA students studying in New Zealand will do their exams from home today, Friday 13th November. Please check Canvas for more information, and message your teacher or the course manager, Martin Walsh, if you have any questions.
